Today, we’re talking about something close to my heart. Skincare. My mother started me on skincare since I was 16. Something very basic like cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I didn’t realize the importance of it, until I started working. I’m never without my sunscreen and I apply eye cream every morning and night without fail…. Read more »
** Warning, lengthy post ** Dior released its Diorskin Star late last year, and in less than a year, there’s another new foundation. I’m very sure you’ve already heard of it by now – nearly every blog I read has mentioned or reviewed this. It’s the Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation (RM191 / 30ml). Accompanying its… Read more »
I decided to add a new ‘series’ on the blog. Let’s just call it On Rotation, since I’ll be talking about products I’ve been using regularly. Something like current favourites which I always fail to do! While I feature a fair bit of product reviews here, I like to stick to a handful of products for some… Read more »
I’ve been wanting to show you guys how the Shiseido Maquillage Dramatic Mood Veil in RD100 look on my skin. You saw how beautiful it is when I posted it on Instagram and isn’t it about time I did a look using it? Since I did a Bobbi Brown centric look recently, I thought I’d… Read more »
Do you remember how I raved about the Biotherm Life Plankton Essence? It immediately put Biotherm on my radar! Today, I have 2 more products to show you, and again, I”m impressed! Aquasource (RM149) is a very light gel moisturizer and it’s a must if your skin needs an instant H2O boost. The Blue Therapy… Read more »
I’ve been seeing these Clinique Pop Lip Colors everywhere. It’s not surprising, since these are really affordable, and the shades available are really pretty. They are pigmented lipstick and lip primer in one. The smoothing primer is infused with the lipstick so that lips look juicier, smoother. The Pop Lip Colors give a modern velvety… Read more »
I love today’s topic. It’s about how our makeup style has changed throughout the years. It’s interesting, looking back, considering I only started wearing makeup when I was pregnant with my first child. That was about 8-9 years back. CRAZY! However, I didn’t really start experimenting since a year before I started the blog, which… Read more »
I like my wardrobe to be monochromatic. Recently, I like my makeup to be bright on the lips and minimal elsewhere. I prefer clean looks, so it’s usually flawless skin (try to anyway!), defined lashes without falsies and bold lip. A simple but classic look. Thing is, I have annoying lashes. Very uncooperative and they like to… Read more »
“This will change your skin inside and out” – Bobbi Brown When it’s said that the hybrid foundation Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 is the fusion of skincare and makeup that beautifies the skin from within, I believe it. I have first hand experience of the benefits of Cordyceps Mushroom. It is a traditional… Read more »
I never really understood face mists until recently. I tried the Caudalie Beauty Elixir a while back and wasn’t really impressed. I liked the cool minty feeling on the skin while some hated it and I didn’t mind the scent while some were completely put off by it. I read good things about the Melvita… Read more »
My new cleansers: Origins Checks & Balances and Origins A Perfect World
I have never been fussy about cleansers as long as they are not too drying on my skin. I can feel it immediately if the cleanser is too harsh. Once I dried my face after the cleanser, there will be a tight pulling feeling that is uncomfortable. I stay away from those cleansers. I chose… Read more »
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Illusoire 83
CHANEL. The name itself is associated with so many things, such as luxury, quality, exclusivity, status, $$, etc. I tried its skincare, and it did not disappoint. Then, I went on to try its Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, and fell in love with it immediately. I have 2 bottles now. Its eyeshadow palettes are a great… Read more »

This is my last post for the year, and I’ve been debating whether to write anything about New Year resolutions or maybe my picks on Best of 2011. There are so many youtube videos and blog posts of faves of the month and hits and misses of the year. So, I think I’m gonna skip… Read more »
Drink up! Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX
It’s hard not to live with air condition. It’s so friggin’ hot here that it is a torture to live a day without air conditioning at all. Imagine going to work without it, driving in your car without it, shopping in a mall without it. I’d rather jump off into the sea and live as a… Read more »

Less than a month ago, Urban Decay came out with a Naked2. It is not available in Malaysia yet, but… Read more »
